As part of #29817, we found out that has vastly surpassed its shelf life, having been installed in 2011. It's a big machine with multiple KVM guests, so we can't simply retire it and redistribute its guests elsewhere, at least not without filling up the rest of the infrastructure.

So we probably need to find a replacement box for moly.

Summary: retire/replace molymove critical services off, and then replace, moly

we can't just retire moly: it's a critical point of presence, one of very precious places outside of Hetzner. but we might just want to replace the hardware anyways, or, in the immediate term, move critical, non n+1 services off of the machine.

this currently means migrating:

  • dictyotum
  • majus
  • getulum

those could moved off to the new FSN cluster. this does implies all our backups are in one basket, but we already have that problem as bungei is already at hetzner and holds the bulk of the information regarding backups (ie. the storage server).

note that the dictory server migration should be attempted using the restore procedure, see also #30880.
